TREBLE BOOSTER

OC44-SUPER RANGER™- PNP Germanium:

picture oc44-Germanium-Transistor

N.O.S. OC44 (New Old Stock)

picture Super-Ranger

 

The SUPER RANGER is a very high quality clone of the famous 1960´s Dallas R****master. Famous users of the original RM include Rory Gallagher, Tony Iommi, Marc Bolan, Eric Clapton (and many others).

This pedal is powered with the same
N.O.S. OC44 vintage germanium transistor as used in the 60´s.

The SUPER RANGER amplifies certain frequencies and adds gain to your notes the higher you play. This will help you to cut thru the mix. This pedal works best with mild overdriven tube amps (Vintage Marshall Amps, Vox AC30, Fender Tweed Amps) or into a good overdrive pedal to receive that beautiful rich tone.

The SUPER RANGER uses a cherry picked N.O.S. OC44 black glass vintage germanium transistor, which is the secret for that beautiful rich classic tone.

This is not a harsh or shrill pedal. It adds rich harmonics and on heavy settings some real nice germanium crunch. This Treble Booster colors your tone in a very musical way.

The Super Ranger will push your tube amp into natural distorion.

We added true bypass on/off switching and a 3-way switch (variable input caps).

The SUPER RANGER features:

# Gain selected black glass N.O.S. (New Old Stock) OC44 germanium transistor from the 1960´s
...- tested for Hfe gain, leakage and tone (Not the still available modern OC44 metal can substitute).

The Super Ranger works with humbucker and single coil guitars

# 3-way input cap switch (gets from Clapton to Sabbath)
Middle position (classic treble boost): stock R****master/great for humbucker guitars
Up position (mid boost): great for single coil guitars
Down position (full boost): full range boost

# N.O.S. Vintage carbon composite resistors
# Blue 3PDT footswitch (true bypass switching) no tone sucking or tone coloring when off
# RF shielded rugged aluminum enclosure
# Chassis mounted input and output jacks (switchcraft)
# Metal shaft alpha pots

# Hand built one at the time
# Finest hand selected and tested components

# Great as a lead boost into your ts-808 based overdrive pedal
# Very responsive to pick attack
# Cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar vol control

Power Requirement:
9 volt battery (carbon zinc for best tone)

The SUPER RANGER has a very low power consumption - the battery will last hundreds of hours.

This Vintage Guitar Effect Pedal was designed to work best with batteries.There is no AC jack because even a very good AC Adapter would add AC noise.

Don´t put a buffered Guitar Effect pedal (non true bypass) between your guitar and the SUPER RANGER. Even when off, a buffered pedal will kill your tone. If you use a buffered pedal put it after the SUPER RANGER.

The SUPER RANGER is a clone of the 1960´s Dallas R****master. As the original the SUPER RANGER doesn´t use a LED or an AC-Jack.

TREBLE BOOSTER

TUBE RANGER™ - PNP Germanium:

picture oc44-Germanium-Transistor

N.O.S. OC44 (New Old Stock)

 

The TUBE RANGER is the same pedal as the SUPER RANGER without the 3-way input cap switch.
Instead of the switch there is a capacitor socket (to change input capacitors)

For tweaking the pedal, different input capacitors are included

FUN FACE

picture oc44 Transistor

N.O.S. OC44 (New Old Stock)

 

picture Fun-Face

The FUN FACE is a very high quality clone of the 1966-1968 Germanium Fuzz F*** , used by Jimi Hendrix on the first Album "Are you Experienced" and "live at Winterland" and... . We added the Bias and Clean knob, which are inside the most fuzz clones.

Vol (Volume): Sets the output volume.

Fuzz: Sets the amount of Fuzz.

Bias: Germanium transistors change there gain at different temperatures therefore the bias resistor has been replaced with the bias knob (a variable resistor). This knob controls the amount of voltage to the transistor. Dial in the sweet spot at around 12 o Clock. (4,5 to 5Volt stock Fuzz F***)

Clean: (pre-gain, input trim) This knob acts like your guitar vol knob, back off this knob a little bit to clean up the fuzz tone (very useful with hot humbuckers, active pickups and wah pedals). If you turn this knob full clockwise, it is completely out of the circuit (stock Fuzz F***)

The FUN FACE uses two hand selected N.O.S. OC44 black glass vintage germanium transistors
which are the key for that vintage germanium fuzz tone
.


The FUN FACE features:

# Two gain selected N.O.S. (New Old Stock) OC44 black glass germanium transistors
...- tested for Hfe gain, leakage and tone
# N.O.S Vintage carbon composite resistors
# RF shielded rugged aluminum enclosure
# 3PDT footswitch (true bypass switching) no tone sucking or tone coloring when off
# Chassis mounted input and output jacks (switchcraft)
# Metal shaft alpha pots

# Hand built one at the time
# Hand selected and tested components

# Very smooth fuzz tone, with just the right amount of gain
# Very responsive to pick attack
# Cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar vol control

Power Requirement:
9 volt battery (carbon zinc for best tone)

The FUN FACE has a very low power consumption - the battery will last hundreds of hours

This Vintage Guitar Effect Pedal was designed to work best with batteries.There is no AC jack because even a very good AC Adapter would add AC noise.

Don´t put a buffered Guitar Effect pedal (non true bypass) between your guitar and the FUN FACE. Even when off, a buffered pedal will kill your tone. If you use a buffered pedal put it after the FUN FACE.

The FUN FACE is a clone of the 1966-1968 Germanium Fuzz F***. As the original the FUN FACE doesn´t use a LED or an AC-Jack.

GREEN & MEAN

OVERDRIVE

picture Green&Mean OverdriveThe GREEN&MEAN OVERDRIVE is a true bypass clone of the vintage 808 with some extras.

This pedal produces a smooth vintage overdrive sound.
We use Poly Film Caps, Silver Micas, true bypass switching ..... , to give you that sweet Texas Blues Tone.

The 3-way boost switch let you select:
Classic
: vintage 808 (un-modded)
Mean: more gain and bass
Bass: same gain as in classic but with all the bass flow thru

Power Requirements:
Standard 9 volt DC power adapter
(2,1mm Boss
® or Ibanez® style) not included or
one 9 volt battery.

The GREEN&MEAN OVERDRIVE has a high power consumption and the use of a power supply is recommended.

GERMANIUM TRANSISTORS:



OC44 black glass Vintage Germanium Transistors

N.O.S (New Old Stock) Mullard/Philips

Made in Europe

picture oc44-Germanium-Transistors
Stored in original manufacture packaging (untouched since 1969)

 

Every transistor is tested for Hfe gain, leakage and tone to recreate that
old school vintage guitar tone.



I select these (gain and leakage tested) transistors by ear for low noise/hiss and best tone.(with an amp and guitar)



All pedals are built with love and care right down to the last detail.
(Hand-Built to Kick Ass)

Have Fun Peace and Rock 'n' Roll
Keep the Blues alive!
